    The Royal Customs and Excise Department (RCED), Ministry of Finance and Economy (MoFE) would like to refer to the matter highlighted in the Opinion Page of the Bulletin – ‘Getting taxed on personal items’ by Confused Traveller on August 3 and ‘Personal belongings are taxable now?’ by Miss Foggy on August 6.

    The RCED would like to share that any private goods that have been used are categorised as used personal effects, in accordance with what has been allocated in the Second Schedule, Customs Import Duties Order 2007, and are not subject to import duty or tax.

    With this opportunity, the RCED seeks the cooperation of Confused Traveller and Miss Foggy and urges them to contact the department’s Customer Service Unit at 2382361 or 8323741 to provide further assistance in validating the incidents on the days when they happened.

    At the same time, the RCED would like to inform the public that all goods entered into the country need to be declared to the department at checkpoints, either by air, sea or land.

    Meanwhile, the public can browse the website, tradingacrossborders.mofe.gov.bn, to find out more about taxable goods or commodities as found in the Brunei Darussalam Tariff and Trade Classification 2017 and restricted goods that require permission or permits from relevant government agencies.
